The crop top may not be for everyone, but for those looking to show off some midriff, the crop makes its return for Spring/Summer 2012. The runway crops included everything from youthful 1950s to evening wear—all of which were incredibly fun, flirty, and perfect for hot summer days! To avoid showing too much skin, pair the crop with a high-waisted skirt or maxi.
